Walking the walk
I don't know about you but I sure have been put through the mill since the beginning of the year.
My world as I knew it was flipped upside down and left me shaky, confused, out of sort, gasping for air, searching to understand what transpired. It is taking me all these months to finally "settle" with my new life, which I feel has still yet to reveal itself to me.
We have gone through some major planetarian changes in the past 5 months that I believe most of us have felt.
We are letting go of the old to make room for the new. In the process a lot of deaths as taken place. A lot of us have or are experiencing the loss of a loved one a companion, a pet, the change in relationships, which forces us to introspect, and review our lives, our values, our thought processes, our understanding, questioning what's truly important, everything is being put on the table for inspection.
It is clearly the establishing of the new era we have just entered last winter Solstice 2013.
According to astrologers the sun has entered the sign of Taurus last April 2014 and on April 28th & 29th there was an Annular Solar Eclipse ("annular" because of the sun's narrow visible ring against the dark moon), which signifies some big changes are taking place within us that are affecting everything about us particularly relationships. Relationships on how we view ourselves, others, the earth, and promoting a new self worth.
Now is time for grounding and re-establishing new and truer values based on love, encouraging feminine values, promoting nurturing, harmony, connection, union, beauty, communication, and truth is the new accent.
We now need to embrace all the feminine values in our lives whether we are a man or a woman. With this change we will regain the natural feminine Wisdom in ourselves and society. By nurturing mother earth and reconnecting with it each day, we will re-root ourselves a little deeper with truer and stronger values to help us function in this new time.
Now we can ask ourselves: am I walking the walk or am I just talking a good talk?
So if you want to move along smoothly these are the guidelines I have been following to help me recreate myself and my life:
Be kind to yourself in this time of change.
Take the time to change.
Hold your horses.
Observe and stay open to insights & dreams; they will guide you in the right direction.
Nurture your relationships with others, especially the ones that see the good in you.
Promote a new relationship with nature; plant a tree, plant a garden, appreciate its beauty and its wisdom.
Know what your values are and strive to live them.
Re-establish your self-worth in your world and take responsibility for your actions.
Be open for change.
Allow for the old you to dissipate; dye to the old idea of yourself to make room for the new you.
With the practice of yoga each day (30 min to 1 hour), it will help you purge the old, ground your emotional body, re-establish a sense of self worth, help you make better decisions, feel healthier and better, and guide you though this transformational time.
In the next couple of month I will be offering 2 workshops to help each one with these changes; a weekend cleanse with 4 yoga classes, and a 7 to 10 days Sadhana around Summer Solstice. Stay tuned for the dates and times.
